The inclusion of sensory issues in the narrative of the newly released Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM 5), suggests greater formal recognition of sensory processing dysfunction as a characteristic of the autism spectrum. 
Participants will experience a sense (no pun intended) of what sensory overload may feel like to a person on the autism spectrum. The presentation focuses on the neurology of sensory processing and how dysfunction in this area contributes to sensory issues that many on the autism spectrum experience. 
These observations are followed by practical solutions for developing accommodations to help these individuals regulate their sensory system. 


Diagnosed with "Atypical Development and strong autistic tendencies" and "too sick" for outpatient treatment Dr. Shore was recommended for institutionalization. Nonverbal until 4, and with much support from his parents, teachers, wife, and others, Stephen is now a full time professor at Adelphi University and adjunct at NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, focusing on aligning best practice in supporting autistic people to lead fulfilling and productive lives.

In addition to working with children and talking about life on the autism spectrum, Stephen is an internationally renowned educator, consultant and author on lifespan issues pertinent to education, relationships, employment, and self-advocacy. His most recent book College for Students with Disabilities combines personal stories and research for promoting success in higher education.

 A current board member of Autism Speaks, and the Organization for Autism Research (OAR), president emeritus of the Asperger/Autism Network, and advisory board member of the Autism Society, Dr. Shore also serves on the advisory boards AANE, and other autism related organizations.
